Reef missions—exploring underwater lessons
Category: Lesson Plans, Media, and Collaborative Research
Resource Type: PDF
Date Posted: 10/11/2012

HIMB has developed a series of high school lessons that uses Autonomous Underwater Vehicle (AUV) and telepresence technology to explore the coral reefs of K?ne‘ohe Bay. The AUV was developed for HIMB by engineers at the MIT Sea Grant AUV Lab. Science content relates to water quality, reef biodiversity, and threats to coral reefs. Teachers can also utilize each set of lesson materials independently of the AUV. Lessons introduce science topics and describe how to conduct transect-quadrat investigations and estimate basic diversity statistics, or analyze water quality data. If you are a teacher interested in the Reef Mission project for your science class, please contact us via email. Or, if you would like to use our lesson modules in your own classroom independent of the AUV, they can be downloaded here:
